The Daily Catch - J-P Mauro - published on 01/13/17

If you’re a regular to the Daily Catch, you know that we love Chris Pratt around here. He just seems like a genuinely nice guy gifted with a quick, sometimes vulgar wit.

Last week he gave an interview to Vanity Fair“That’s why I believe in God and the divine.”

It was in Hawaii that Pratt says he was “saved.” Explaining, “I was sitting outside a grocery store—we’d convinced someone to go in and buy us beer. This is Maui. And a guy named Henry came up and recognized something in me that needed to be saved. He asked what I was doing that night, and I was honest. I said, ‘My friend’s inside buying me alcohol.’ ‘You going to go party?’ he asked. ‘Yeah.’ ‘Drink and do drugs? Meet girls, fornication?’ I was like, ‘I hope so.’ I was charmed by this guy, don’t know why. He was an Asian dude, maybe Hawaiian, in his 40s. It should’ve made me nervous but didn’t. I said, ‘Why are you asking?’ He said, ‘Jesus told me to talk to you . . .’ At that moment I was like, I think I have to go with this guy. He took me to church. Over the next few days I surprised my friends by declaring that I was going to change my life.”

We love seeing celebrities talking about their faith and thank Mr. Pratt for being unafraid to share his faith encounter with us all.
